and those conditions are excluded from any guarantee and is not valid to reject the puppy due to these conditions.


The BUYER agrees to have the dog examined by your veterinarian at your expense within 3 business days from date of purchase. If the veterinarian does not give the dog a clean bill of health, BUYER must notify the SELLER immediately. SELLER reserves the right to have the dog re-examined by our veterinarian at our cost. Any condition that is minor, correctable or a breed related minor condition is not covered and no condition which could go away, or is considered to be a condition which a puppy will likely grow out of is covered.


If the dog is then found not to be in good health, SELLER will resume possession if this is agreeable to both parties. SELLER does not accept responsibility for contagious disease diagnosed after 3 business days from date of purchase. Hip and elbow dysplasia and pathological spinal disorder is covered for 1 year from date of purchase with the same conditions as above in effect. Your dog has been tested and examined for many conditions to assure his health. Heat stroke, exhaustion, dehydration and other heat related conditions are not covered in any way. Remember that a Shih Tzu can over heat quickly and easily and may die as a result of overheating. He/ She must be an indoor dog.

A one year after sale “replacement warranty” is given for any life-threatening congenital disease that causes said puppy to expire. Purchaser must provide written documentation from their vet after having a necropsy performed at the purchaser’s expense that the death was in fact caused from a genetic defect.  Purchaser agrees to send the notarized vet’s report and all medical records for this puppy to breeder’s vet.  Breeder’s vet must confirm and agree with the diagnosis.  Breeders will than give the purchaser a replacement puppy of equal value and the same gender, from the next available litter that produces such a puppy. Replacement warranty will be terminated if puppy was found to be abused, neglected or does not have up to date records of vaccinations and fecal records.  Under no circumstances will a puppy be euthanized even on the advice of your vet. Unless the puppy is in immediate distress without first consulting with the SELLER and any finding, x-rays, etc. sent to SELLER’s vet. Putting a puppy down without consulting the SELLER/breeder will void the warranty.  We have found that there are many vets out there who are just not familiar with these tiny breeds and will advise putting a perfectly healthy puppy to sleep unnecessarily because of something they have never encountered before.  If SELLER’s vet agrees that the best option for the puppy is to put it down, a replacement puppy will be given per the terns of this contract. There breeder is not responsible for vet bills or other expenses.
